Install nginx with ngx_http_realip_module on pfSense 2.3



  • I need to install and run nginx with the ngx_http_realip_module enabled.  Unfortunately the version that comes built in to run the pfSense GUI does not include this module.  Since I cannot compile from source, which is what I'd do on my ubuntu boxes - how can I:

    • find the correctly compiled openBSD binary

    • install it, being careful not to break the version already included



  • I've decided to create a VirtualBox for a corresponding BSD version to compile nginx as I need it.  I'll post back the result.



  • how the process?)
